    Which reminds me – if Sjælland is Zealand would Hamlet be a Zealand story? and in that case why does the New Zealand story contain a kiwi?

    Heh. Yorick’s skull was referring to the custom (still extant) of bones without flesh having no rights of possession. So he’d be dug up and taken to a crypt and packed away with thousands of other bones. This is still extant in much of Europe and the UK. Mark Twain once said in referring to this custom, that there would be some exciting times when the last trump blew, and all the owners of those bones would be trying to sort them all out and get the right ones. LOL.

    @Margaret

    I’m not sure either. Maybe it’s his giblets.

    @ Margaret and pcolli: the reference is from Hamlet, Act V, Scene I. Hamlet picks up the skull of Yorick, the court jester and says: “Alas, poor Yorick!—I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: ….. Where be your gibes now?”

    I don’t know about other countries but in the UK we don’t get giblets in chickens, any more.
